Hillclimb awards

Well done Peter Stanley!

The winner of the Winter Cup for the 2018 Hillclimb season was long time Hillclimber Geoff Vardon driving in a Datsun 120Y Sports Sedan that he built and engineered himself, powered by a Honda engine it defines a “pocket rocket.” Named 2nd in the competition was another longtime Hillclimber (and previous winner) Danny Maul driving his Circuit Excel, finishing 3rd was David Hall in his ever reliable Toyota MR2.

The Collingrove Challenge Trophy for Multi Club Competition was won by Peter Stanley in his Austin Healey Sprite Mk2, 2nd was David Hall Toyota MR2 and 3rd was David Angel in his Ford Cortina GT Mk2.

Congratulations to you all for your speedy and consistent performances over the season.

The Collingrove Cup was presented by its donor Mr Glen Dix OAM to Naomi Maltby.

MSCA Trophy Presentation and Display Day.

The annual Marque Sports Car Association Trophy Presentation and Display Day was held at Vigara Winery on the 24thFebruary. While it was a warm day, it was well supported by members and vehicles from all the MSCA member car clubs.

As well a chance to display member’s vehicles, it is a day to recognise the achievements of the drivers competing in the MSCA Mallala Super sprints during the 2018 competition year.

A big congratulation must go to all the competitors from this year, but an especially big congratulation must go to the drivers who won their classes! 

The Sprite Club of SA was well represented in the Winners Circle with Barry Edson (Clubman’s 1300-1600cc) and James Dover (Clubman’s 1600-2000cc) winning their respective classes for the year. Congratulations!

Barry also proved a consistent year on the track taking 2ndplace in the Sprint Driver of the Year Award. This trophy is now added to the others gained during 2018 at Legend of the Lakes hill climb, so overall it has been a successful 12 months for Barry and the Kestrel Clubman. Congratulations Barry!

Parts wanted

Believe it or not, I am building a MG Midget mk1 rear axle to modify and use in a 1925 Amilcar, in place of a very old design rear end. What I am missing is a pair of rear axles and hubs, to suit a wire wheel Mk 1 assembly. I have most of the other bits, so once I can find some axles I can build it all up. If you can find a member of your club who can help that would be great. Thanks, Brian Jeffery 0438 705 720.
